U.K. Listing Authority to Publish New Entry Rules in July

The U.K. Listing Authority will publish new rules in July for companies seeking a share offering or that already list securities in the country, Financial Services Authority spokesman Chris Hamilton said.

The move follows a public consultation period on proposed changes to the rules that began in October, Hamilton said today by telephone.

The UKLA will insist on independent directors forming a majority on the boards of companies with a controlling shareholder, and plans to introduce a new dual voting procedure, the Financial Times reported earlier.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
